Key Camper Facts

-Year: 1986
-Model/Trim: Sportsmobile E250
-Length: Not Listed
-Miles: 67,752
-Engine: V8 351

More Details: 1986 Ford Econoline E-250 camper van, 67,752 miles. V8 351 engine, a/c, automatic transmission. I was told and believe it was professionally converted by Sportsmobile, though I have no paperwork to that effect. Penthouse top is tall enough for a 6’4 person. Propane stove, electric refrigerator freezer, sink, Porta Potti, wired for 110-120v, aux. battery, lower bed/sofa with table and upper bunk, can sleep 3 to 4. Passed smog with flying colors. Everything works.

* I have owned this vehicle for aprox. 3 years and the best I can figure, it sat in a garage in East Texas most of its life. It is an 8 on the outside due to clear coat peeling on the body stripe and some rain gutter rust, as is common with this make and model (anti rust kit included). 8 on the inside due to some peeling away of the wall paper on cabinetry and boarding.

* A small oil leak necessitates refilling with aprox 1.5 quarts every 1,500 miles. On occasion it hesitates upon acceleration, so at some point in the future it will probably need some carburetor work. Propane tank is currently half full and will likely need a cleaning prior to refilling due to old propane gumming up the input receptacle.

This is a unique vehicle that doesn’t come around very often, especially one in this good of shape and mileage this low. I would not hesitate to drive it to any of the 48 contiguous states today, plus Alaska. I recently purchased a bumper pull camper, so it’s time to say goodbye to the Sportsmobile.

I have never experienced any problems with the engine or the transmission. They both run and perform great. A/C blows cool. 50k tires were new in 2010 and have less than 10k on them
